MPA Lifter Rankings

I have been delaying this for quite some time now but finally i have started making solid progress towards getting lifter rankings done for the MPA. Currently I have completed the Top 50 M/F All time lifters. Over time i will incorporate many more top 50s.

I will include:

Top 50 M/F Junior all time

Top 50 M/F Masters all time

Top 50 M/F Bench- only all time

Yearly top 50s

Any questions about this topic feel free to contact me, or if I had made any errors in the top 50 lifter ranking so far please let me know.

2018 CPU Westerns: Team Manitoba Meet Report

Team Manitoba at 2018 CPU Western Canadian Championships

By Mark Oxer, Team Manitoba Head Coach

 

The 2018 Westerns in Edmonton Alberta; were the largest non-national event in Western Canadian history with over 260 lifters competing. There were two platforms with multiple sessions per day. Manitoba sent a team of 18 lifters to the event. The three day event had lifters from Manitoba lifting on each of the three days.

Friday was the busiest day at the event for Team Manitoba with 13 of our lifters participating; Friday morning the Juniors and Subjuniors participated in 3 lift and Friday afternoon/evening (after a bit of a delayed start) saw all of the bench only athletes lift. Saturday was the busiest day at the event as a whole as it was both male and female open lifters competing in 3 lift; Manitoba had 4 lifters competing on Saturday, 3 in the morning session and 1 in the afternoon. Sunday was the quietest day at the competition but still saw a lot of great lifting, Sunday was the day the Masters lifters competed in 3 lift; Manitoba had two lifters participating.
